This site is dedicated to the single purpose of making the term ‘financialization’ a part of our national conversation.
Financialization refers to a new way of doing business: instead of profits earned from actually making a product, profits are earned via stock market performance. This means the 'product' becomes secondary to dividends.
Financialization also includes an oligarchical component wherein the elite make policy decisions, steer economies, and control governments.

As I’ve watched the convention these past few days it’s blatantly obvious from what playbook the Republican party is playing. In fact, one needs only to read the slogan “Keep America Safe” to understand that they are feeding the … Continue reading
You are the first, but you are not our best. I know this with certainty, there are others with greater integrity and deeper loyalties – it is difficult to miss them among your repute. You deliver promises from a podium and … Continue reading
